The lecture on the importance of medicinal plants, their cultivation, and processing was delivered by renowned experts from the related government agencies and agriculture industry. Laying special emphasis on the various techniques used in Animal Husbandry, Dr. Ajitpal Singh Dhaliwal (Animal Husbandry Specialist) from Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Bathinda educated the farmers about practicing dairy farming, poultry farming, and pig farming efficiently.

The farmers were also trained for “best practices for soil testing” by Sh. Pankaj Vijayvergia (In-charge) from National Fertilizer Limited, Jalandhar for estimation of minerals such as sodium, potassium and phosphorous. They were told about various upcoming beneficial policies of the government for their betterment and instructed to provide soil samples from their fields for which the report and certificate will be provided to them after testing by NFL, Jalandhar. Towards the end, cultivation of medicinal plants by the esteemed guests, farmers and LPU staff was done at the “Herbal Garden” of School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, LPU.

The farmers appreciated the advanced endeavors of LPU in the field of agriculture. Emphasizing upon the importance of domestic farming, Dr. Amarjit Singh Sandhu (Vegetable Specialist) from Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Bhatinda said: “It is essential to revive domestic farming in order to fulfill the domestic needs and decrease dependency on the markets.”

Dr. Monica Gulati, LPU Senior Dean shared: “Non-availability of quality planting material and guidance for their cultivation are the major constraints coming in the way of commercialisation of traditional Indian medicine. It is very important to create awareness amongst our major stakeholders i.e. farmers regarding biodiversity of medicinal plants and their cultivation. LPU is proud to host such events that help the farmers to stay updated with recent farming techniques and government policies.”
